Printing Files Directly from Windows
You can print files directly using Windows commands; "lpr" or "ftp".
Setup
Use the following procedure to make network environment settings.
1. Enable TCP/IP using the control panel, and then set up the printer’s network environment
about TCP/IP including IP addresses.
TCP/IP of the printer is set as default.
2. Install a TCP/IP in Windows to set up the network environment.
Consult the network administrator for the local setting information.
3. To print, install “Printing service for UNIX” as the network application.
• For details about setting an IP address, see Hardware Guide.
• For details about setting an IP address of the printer using DHCP, see p.134 "Using DHCP".
• This completes the setup for specifying a printer using an IPv4 address when printing. When using a
host name to specify a printer, proceed to p.115 "Using a Host Name Instead of an IPv4 Address"
and continue the setup.
8
Using a Host Name Instead of an IPv4 Address
When a host name is defined, you can specify a printer by host name instead of an IPv4 address. The
host names vary depending on the network environment.
When using DNS
Use the host name set to the data file on the DNS server.
When setting the IPv4 address of a printer using DHCP
Use the printer name on the configuration page as the host name.
115
8. Special Operations under Windows
• For details about printing configuration page using the control panel, see p.53 "Printing the
Configuration Page".
• For details about printing configuration page using Web Image Monitor, see p.101 "Printing Lists/
Reports".
In other cases
Add the IPv4 address and host name of the network printer to the hosts file on the computer used for
printing.
1. Open the hosts file using memo pad files, for instance.
The hosts file is in the following location:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\HOSTS
2. Add an IPv4 address and host name to the hosts file using the following format:
192.168.15.16 host# NP
"192.168.15.16" is the IPv4 address, "host” is this printer's host name, and "#NP” is replaced by
comments. Insert a space or tab between “192.168.15.16” and "host”, between "host” and
"#NP” respectively, using one line for this format.
3. Save the file.

Printing Commands
The following explains printing operations using the "lpr" and "ftp" commands.
Enter commands using the command prompt window. The location of the command prompt varies
depending on operating systems:
• Windows XP/Vista/7, Windows Server 2003/2003 R2/2008/2008 R2
[Start] - [All Programs] - [Accessories] - [Command Prompt]
• Match the data format of the file to be printed with the emulation mode of this printer.
• If the message "print requests full" appears, no print jobs can be accepted. Try again when sessions
end. For each command, the amount of possible sessions is indicated as follows:
• lpr: 10
• Enter the file name in a format including the path from the directory executing commands.
116
Printing Files Directly from Windows
• The "option” specified in a command is an intrinsic printer option and its syntax is similar to printing
from UNIX.
lpr
When specifying a printer by an IP address
c:\> lpr -Sprinter's IP address -Pprinter name [-ol] \pass name\file name
When specifying a printer by host name instead of an IP address
c:\> lpr -Sprinter host name -Pprinter's name [-ol] \pass name\file name
To print a binary file, include the “-ol” switch (a dash followed by a lowercase O and L) after the
printer name.

127
10. Appendix
Transmission Using IPsec
For securer communications, this printer supports the IPsec protocol. When applied, IPsec encrypts data
packets at the network layer using shared key encryption. The printer uses encryption key exchange to
create a shared key for both sender and receiver. To achieve even higher security, you can also renew
the shared key on a validity period basis.
• IPsec is not applied to data obtained through DHCP, DNS, or WINS.
• IPsec compatible operating systems are Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista/7, Windows Server
2003/2003 R2/2008/2008 R2, Mac OS X 10.4.8 and later, Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 4.0,
and Solaris 10. However, some setting items are not supported depending on the operating
system. Make sure the IPsec settings you specify are consistent with the operating system's IPsec
settings.
• If you cannot access Web Image Monitor due to IPsec configuration problems, disable IPsec under
[Network Setting] on the control panel, and then access Web Image Monitor.
• For details about specifying the IPsec settings using Web Image Monitor, see p.95 "Configuring the
IPsec Settings".
• For details about enabling and disabling IPsec using the control panel, see p.133 "Enabling and
Disabling IPsec Using the Control Panel".
Encryption and Authentication by IPsec
10
IPsec consists of two main functions: the encryption function, which ensures the confidentiality of data,
and the authentication function, which verifies the sender of the data and the data's integrity. This
printer's IPsec function supports two security protocols: the ESP protocol, which enables both of the IPsec
functions at the same time, and the AH protocol, which enables only the authentication function.
ESP Protocol
The ESP protocol provides secure transmission through both encryption and authentication. This
protocol does not provide header authentication.
• For successful encryption, both the sender and receiver must specify the same encryption
algorithm and encryption key. The encryption algorithm and encryption key are specified
automatically.
• For successful authentication, the sender and receiver must specify the same authentication
algorithm and authentication key. The authentication algorithm and authentication key are
specified automatically.
128
Transmission Using IPsec
AH Protocol
The AH protocol provides secure transmission through authentication of packets only, including
headers.
• For successful authentication, the sender and receiver must specify the same authentication
algorithm and authentication key. The authentication algorithm and authentication key are
specified automatically.
AH Protocol + ESP Protocol
When combined, the ESP and AH protocols provide secure transmission through both encryption
and authentication. These protocols provide header authentication.
• For successful encryption, both the sender and receiver must specify the same encryption
algorithm and encryption key. The encryption algorithm and encryption key are specified
automatically.
• For successful authentication, the sender and receiver must specify the same authentication
algorithm and authentication key. The authentication algorithm and authentication key are
specified automatically.
• Some operating systems use the term "Compliance" in place of "Authentication".
Security Association
This printer uses encryption key exchange as the key setting method. With this method, agreements such
as the IPsec algorithm and key must be specified for both sender and receiver. Such agreements form
what is known as an SA (Security Association). IPsec communication is possible only if the receiver's and
sender's SA settings are identical.
The SA settings are auto-configured on both parties' printers. However, before the IPsec SA can be
established, the ISAKMP SA (Phase 1) settings must be auto-configured. When this is done, the IPsec SA
(Phase 2) settings, which allow actual IPsec transmission, will be auto-configured.
10
Also, for further security, the SA can be periodically auto updated by applying a validity period (time
limit) for its settings. This printer only supports IKEv1 for encryption key exchange.
Multiple settings can be configured in the SA.
Settings 1-10
You can configure ten separate sets of SA details (such as different shared keys and IPsec
algorithms).
IPsec policies are searched through one by one, starting at [No.1].

Cautions to Take When Using in a Network
Using DHCP
You can use this printer in a DHCP environment.
• Supported DHCP servers are those which are included with Windows Server 2003/2003
R2/2008/2008 R2.
• DHCP relay-agent is not supported. If you use DHCP relay-agent on a network via ISDN, it will
result in increased line charges. This is because your computer connects to the ISDN line whenever
a packet is transferred from the printer.
• If there is more than one DHCP server, use the same setting for all servers.
The printer operates using data from the DHCP server that responds first.
Using AutoNet
If the printer IPv4 address is not assigned by a DHCP server automatically, a temporary IPv4 address
starting with 169.254, which is not used on the network, can be automatically selected by the printer.
If an AutoNet address is set as the printer's IP address, it changes every time you turn on the printer.
Configure the TCP/IP settings according to your network environment.
You must change this setting to “on” to use AutoNet.
• The IP address assigned by the DHCP server is given priority over that selected by AutoNet.
• You can confirm the current IPv4 address on the configuration page.
10
134
• The printer cannot communicate with devices that do not have the AutoNet function. However, this
printer can communicate with Macintosh computers running Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
Using Adobe PageMaker Version 6.0, 6.5, or 7.0
Using Adobe PageMaker Version 6.0, 6.5, or
7.0
Under Windows operating system environment with Adobe PageMaker, you need to copy PPD files to
the PageMaker folder.
PPD files have the ".ppd" extension in the folder
“DRIVERS\PS\XP_VISTA\(Language)\DISK1\” on the CD-ROM.
The third folder “(Language)” may be substituted by an appropriate language name.
Copy the ".ppd" file to the PageMaker folder.
• For PageMaker 6.0 default installation
The directory is “C:\PM6\RSRC\PPD4”.
• For PageMaker 6.5 default installation
The directory is “C:\PM65\RSRC\USENGLISH\PPD4”.
The “USENGLISH” may vary depending on your language selection.
• For PageMaker 7.0 default installation
The directory is “C:\PM7\RSRC\USENGLISH\PPD4”.
The “USENGLISH” may vary depending on your language selection.
• If the driver is not set correctly after copying the “.ppd” file, printing may not be performed
properly.
• When using PageMaker, the optional features that can be selected by the printer driver will not be
active. The following procedure describes how to activate the optional printer features.
1. On the [File] menu, click [Print].
The [Print Document] dialog box appears.
10
2. Make the necessary settings in the [Features] box.

When Using Windows Terminal Service/
MetaFrame
The following explains how to use Windows Terminal Service and MetaFrame.
Operating Environment
The following operating systems and MetaFrame versions are supported.
Windows Server 2003/2003 R2
• MetaFrame XP 1.0 FR3
• MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0
• Citrix Presentation Server 4.0
Supported Printer Drivers
When Windows Terminal Service is operating
• PCL printer driver
• PostScript 3
Limitations
The following limitations apply to the Windows Terminal Service environment.
10
These limitations are built in Windows Terminal Service or MetaFrame.
MetaFrame's [Auto-creating client printers]
Using [Auto-creating client printers], you can select a logical printer created by copying the client's
local printer data to the MetaFrame server. We strongly recommend testing this function in your
network environment before using it for your work.
• The settings for optional equipment will not be stored in the server after the equipment is
disconnected. The settings for optional equipment will be restored to its defaults each time the
client computer logs on to the server.
• When printing a large number of bitmap images or using the server in a WAN environment
over dial-up lines such as ISDN, printing may not be possible or errors may occur, depending
on data transfer rates.
• When using MetaFrame XP 1.0 or higher versions, we recommend making settings in [Client
Printer bandwidth] under [Citrix Management Console] according to the environment.
136
When Using Windows Terminal Service/MetaFrame
• If a print error occurs on the MetaFrame XP 1.0 SP1/FR1 and the print job or a printer
created in [Auto-creating client printers] cannot be deleted, we recommend making settings in
[Delete unfinished print jobs] in the registry. For details, see the Readme file provided with
MetaFrame.
• If a print error occurs on the MetaFrame XP 1.0 FR2 and the print job or a printer created in
[Auto-creating client printers] cannot be deleted, we recommend making settings in [Delete
unfinished print jobs at logout] of Citrix Management Console.
MetaFrame's [Printer driver replication]
Using [Printer driver replication], you can distribute printer drivers across all servers in a server
farm. We strongly recommend testing this function in your network environment before using it for
your work.
• If the printer drivers are not properly copied, install them directly onto each server.
